Darphin Intral Lightweight Environmental Shield
The success of any daily SPF50 relies on it behaving more like skin care and less like a traditional sun-screen in terms of visibility and weight. Brands have got really good at losing the grey/white cast that sun-screen can leave and making even a high SPF feel lightweight. The Darphin Intral Lightweight Environmental Shield, launching at the end of January, is a good example. Silky to the touch, easily absorbed, nude toned and suitable for use before makeup, it uses mineral filters to shield from UVA and UVB rays and wheat proteins to protect skin against environmental pollution.
Although there are a few excellent daily SPFs for the face around already, I think this is an area that can only grow now that technology has got rid of the oily feel and the grey finish. At £35 it’s competitive within the field, and is suitable for sensitive skin.
